* Cross stitch card

Posted on January 31st, 2010 by maitreya. Filed under Cross Stitch/Embroidery.


It’s been a loooooong time since I’ve done much cross stitch, even though it used to be my go-to craft (archive check:  not that long ago, I guess).  I needed a special card and fortuitously came across this half-completed design in my embroidery box.  It’s a Danish kit I got on a trip lo many years ago.  I still remember the charming shop: some basement in Aarhus, crammed with Danish flower thread and other lovely supplies, and tended by a nice old lady.  I still wish I’d bought one of every color of the flower thread since I really love the matte finish and soft hand.  I think I was a thrifty grad student at the time, so I’m forgiven. :P

Finished it up in just one evening of TV.  I’d forgotten how enjoyably mindless cross stitching is.
